This hotel was in such a great location, wonderful shopping all around, a two minute walk to a cable car stop, it was just a shame that the bathroom was so tiny, so we struggled with four of us in the room and the service was a bit stand offish. Overall, if you want a great city location and are... More

We are a family of 4 with 2 small children (aged 1 & 3) And we were very pleased with this location. My advice is to book directly - as you may get an upgrade like we did! We are in a huge king sized bed room with a separate lounge room. Worth booking!

I had the pleasure of working at the Handlery this summer for only a brief time, but was treated to one of the best work experiences I have ever had. The staff, HR, and management, including those working arduously behind the scenes are like a close family. From the amazing housekeeping staff, to the bellstaff I had worked with who... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon. We caught the BART train from the airport to a station nearest the hotel (just check their website for close stations), this was easy enough but we arrived in the night and it was a bit tricky to find the hotel, walking with suitcases was not super fun. The... More

Love this hotel. Very well renovated. Rooms are not the biggest but tastefully done. Very centrally located. You can walk to most places or all public transport is at your door step. Very loud on weekend nights. Avoid the weekends and festive seasons but other wise its awesome.

i really wish I could give half stars. 3 is a little low but 4 was too high but what ultimately swung my was some of the little "less then luxuries". First, I understand that this hotel is located in the heart of union square. For this type of location, a certain level of of fee is charged. I understood... More

Staying in Union Square

Neighborhood Profile
Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theaters in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.
